Victorian Pre 1876 William Morton Sheffield Spear Point Bowie Knife With Buffalo Horn Scales, Folding Cork Screw, Removable Spike & Tweezers With Leather Scabbard. Sn 16151 - 16151

The date William Morton launched his knife making business is unknown but he is listed as a spring knife maker in Darnall in 1868. William Morton & Sons Sheffield were first listed in directories in 1876 at the old Rockingham Works 175 Rockingham Street, Sheffield as makers of pocket knives and sports knives (see page 231 of the Sheffield Knife Book by Tweedale). This is an excellent Victorian era folding Bowie Knife by William Morton in its original leather scabbard. The knife's 6 ¾” spear point bowie blade has just light staining consistent with age. The knife measures 11 ¼” overall length. The blade is crisply marked on one side with the manufacturer’s name ‘W. Morton Sheffield’ together with the manufacturer’s ‘Weighing Scales’ trade mark. It has undamaged chequered Buffalo horn scales which are slotted for original removable tools which consist of a 3 ¾” pin sharp steel spike and a pair of steel tweezers. It has a German Silver finger guard. The steel grip frame incorporates a folding cork screw. The knife is complete with original open top brown leather scabbard which has an integral single leather belt loop. All leather and stitching are intact. The price includes UK Delivery. Sn 16151
